It's why you come to Tahoe - for a walk in the woods amid the peace and beauty of the freshly fallen snow or the fragrant scent of the blooming jeffrey pines. A Walk in the Woods is a gorgeous, newly constructed home in a perfect location. Centrally located in Tahoe Vista between Tahoe City and Kings Beach, and backing up to the gorgeous National Forest, you are set to enjoy all aspects of Lake Tahoe simultaneously. Beach access is just minutes away while the mountains are truly in your back yard. The interior is equally ideal. The upstairs great room boasts an open floor plan with new, upscale furnishings, large windows and vaulted ceilings. Enjoy conversing with the chef while the kids play cards at the dining table and the grandparents watch the nightly news. Everyone can be together at once in this spacious arena. Or, let the kids romp around downstairs while the adults relax on the top deck amid the numerous trees and wildflowers. But don't stay at home too long, be sure to go take a walk in the woods.

A Walk In The Woods: Gorgeous Home Backs To Forest & Regional Park
average rating of 4.5 based on 5 reviews

A wonderful property, very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We loved the space, the photos are accurate and it worked for our family- 18 mo baby, adult children, grandparents and even an 81 yo parent. Very comfortable beds, beautiful and fully equipped kitchen. Very close to skiing and hiking in the 'hood is super easy. There is a park with a ropes center very close by, too. You definitely need 4 wheel drive vehicle- we got snowed in for two days which was actually kind of fun! The fireplace is kind of odd- it is gas connected to the room temperature, so we did not have the roaring fire we dreamed of at key times. There is only one zone of heat for the whole house, which was odd considering the home, which is gorgeous, was built in 2008. Still scratching our heads on that one! Loved 'A Walk in the Woods'.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We are a large family and love to cook when we travel together. This home provided us all the amenities we needed. The hot tub was a plus after playing outdoors in the beautiful back country. It was beautifully but thoughtfully decorated. We only had a problem trying to get the thermostat to adjust correctly to keep the house cool for us. I would rent this property again. Great for winter vacations.
